Abstract:
The Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest is 3,800 acres of forest lying in Graham County. This ageless forest, the last virgin forest on the East Coast, has never been touched by an axe and will remain so. It was dedicated in 1936 to the American soldier-poet, Joyce Kilmer, who wrote the famous poem “Trees,\" and was later killed in World War I on July 30, 1918. Stephenson discusses what the future may be for the forest, how proposed additional roads will affect it, and what the public's responsibility is in maintaining it as Nature intended.

Abstract:
Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest in the Nantahala National Forest in western North Carolina is virtually untouched. Home of an impressive collection of the oak-chestnut trees, a virtually extinct species today, Joyce Kilmer Forest is truly a sight to behold. Deer, bear, fox, and bobcat live there, and the Civilian Conservation Corps laid countless forest trails through the woods for visitors.

On July 30, 1936, fifty guests and scores of U.S. Forest Service personnel gathered near Robbinsville to listen to a message from President Franklin D. Roosevelt dedicating the Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest. The forest, 3,800 acres of woodland lying in Graham County, is the last virgin forest on the East Coast and constitutes one of the remnants of the original forest that covered the slopes of the Appalachian Mountains. It has never been touched by an axe and will remain so. It was dedicated to the American soldier-poet, Joyce Kilmer, who wrote the famous poem “Trees,\" and was later killed in World War I on July 30, 1918.
